Training Cats to Hold Their Breath Underwater

Training Cats to Hold their Breath Underwater

Training Cats to Hold their Breath Underwater t is hard to know for sure at this point in my life, but it is possible that I was seven years old though more than likely I was probably eight. But what is for certain, is that it was in the later part of that year’s spring after I had been taking swimming lessons during the previous summer. I fell quite short of becoming a prolific swimmer but I did learn a...

Terracotta Warriors Tour in China

Terracotta Warriors Tour in China. 19 June 2017. I was up and on four hours of sleep when I had to hit the shower at 08:30.

Priscilla and I spent the morning looking at pictures of...

Cotacachi to Popayán: Changing Countries and Talking to Idiots

Cotacachi to Popayán: Changing Countries and Talking to Idiots

Cotacachi to Popayán: Changing Countries and Talking to Idiots. July 2. Changing countries is always hell somehow.  Even as a wily veteran traveller, it is always a little bit terrifying heading into the complete unknown.  By now I should be used to that slight feeling of un-comfort, yet I still feel it every time when I am changing countries.  There is a new currency to learn the value of when changing countries, a new list of cities to geographically memorize...
